Dolor and Shadow by Angela B. Chrysler is a fantasy saga worth reading. Here’s an opportunity to read it for free! I’m giving away three eBook (amazon.com) copies to the first three people to go to the Atomic Aaardvark Facebook Page, find the status about Dolor and Shadow and comment with the word “berserker”.
With first-rate world building, in depth character development, and layers of political drama and warfare, Dolor and Shadow captivated me.
The brutalities of war, which unfortunately included children as casualties, were not glossed over, nor dwelt upon to the point of being violence just for the sake of violence. People’s deaths affected the main characters in realistic, deep, and debilitating ways. A good portion of the narrative focused on one character’s, Kallan’s, struggle to cope with the atrocities she’d been a witness to and victim of.
Kallan’s plight is the central focus of the story but, as allies and foes protect and pursue her, mysteries of the lands through which she travels and of the people who inhabit them unravel to reveal subplots steeped in myth and magic.
With an ending that’s just the beginning, I will be first in line for Volume 2.
